Jose Bautista: Coverboy?

For the baseball video game junkies, this is Jose Bautista during a recent photo shoot for MLB 12: The Show.

Back in November, it was announced that Boston Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez would be the cover athlete for the game, scheduled for release on March 6, 2012 for PlayStation 3. However, these photos might justify a little bit of speculation over the potential for a separate Bautista-graced cover being released in Canada.

No matter the outcome, the Toronto Blue Jays slugger promises big news coming next week.
